It's More than Just a Facial - You must Relax

Did you know the impact of Stress on your skin:
THE STRESS CYCLE
The way stress affects your skin is that when you're tense, your brain releases cortisol, a stress hormone, into your bloodstream. That tells the oil glands to ramp up production, leading to breakouts. Stress also dilates blood vessels, which causes redness and aggravates rosacea.
Another side effect of stress on your skin is that your skin becomes dehydrated, sensitive, and more susceptible to damage. Besides causing lines from furrowing your brow, stress also makes you look markedly older.
We already lose 1 percent of our skin's collagen supply every year after we hit age 20, but stress can accelerate that. Younger women are are getting wrinkles early and older women are still fighting acne. These issues are caused in large part because people are more stressed out than they were even five years ago.
Some wrinkle/acne triggers are relationships, money, work, and family, and according to leading Dermotologist, Dr. Howard Murad, there is a rise in "cultural stress--the feeling that women expect perfection from themselves in all areas at all times. We all know that stress is unhealthy for your heart and brain, but it's just as bad for your skin." Repairing it works best with a dual-pronged approach that incorporates internal and external fixes, i.e, intake of essential nutrients topically especially on your face ( Vitamins A, C and E) and internally through food and supplements.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to not only treat your skin because it's more than just a facial, there is incredible lymphatic massage of your scalp, neck, shoulders, arms and hands.
